Thanks to Mr Hedlund we had the confirmation that On The Road will be out on US only in March, instead opening this weekend as first planned.
Last Wednesday (12) Kirsten joined co-stars Kristen Stewart and Garrett Hedlund in a special screening of “On The Road” in New York. On Thursday (13) she attended the “On The Road” premiere, and I have over 200 HQ pictures of both events finally added to the gallery:
So, the U.S. trailer for “On The Road” was released yesterday. Watch it below:
“On The Road” will hit theaters next December 21st.
We know On The Road is out everywhere but USA – which will be open next December 21st – and you can already buy the DVD through Amazon.fr. It’s set to be released TOMORROW in both DVD and Blu-Ray format. So if you didn’t see it yet and can’t wait, just order your copy!
I have up 250 beautiful blu-ray quality screencaptures of Kristen’s breathtaking performance as Camille, the Dean Moriarty’s wife. Her appearance isn’t as long as we wanted to, but it worth watching nonetheless. Check the previews below, and full captures in our gallery:
Kristen Stewart: ‘I love Marylou. She jumps off the page and smacks you in the face’
On the Road’s Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst on how they brought Kerouac’s ‘silent heroines’ into sharper focus
For many, On the Road is primarily one for the boys. Jack Kerouac’s obsession with the egotistical and hedonistic drifter Neal Cassady dominates the book, with the female characters relegated to the back seat, disposable objects that float in and out of the tale at the convenience of the proto-beat lads.
That’s one view. But to director Walter Salles, the novel’s female characters, especially those based on Cassady’s long-suffering wives, are “the silent heroines” of the piece. Accordingly, he has cast two of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses – Kristen Stewart and Kirsten Dunst – to play them.
Stewart is Marylou, the book’s version of Cassady’s first wife, LuAnne Henderson, who joined Cassady and Kerouac on their road trips across America; Dunst is Camille, aka second wife Carolyn Cassady, who stayed at home with the babies in San Francisco. Cassady flitted between these women, sleeping with Carolyn while married to LuAnne, keeping LuAnne as a lover after he had divorced her for Carolyn. Kerouac made little effort to give his female friends depth and dignity on the page; the film attempts to remedy that oversight.
Stewart’s prominence in the promotion of the film reflects both that intention and the Twilight star’s high profile. The 22-year-old also happens to be a surprisingly passionate fan of the book.
“On the Road was on the reading list in my freshman year and thank God, I chose it,” she recalls. “It looked much more fun than any of the others. I knew that it was about counterculture, and when you’re 14 years old and putting ridiculous anarchy signs on your backpack that’s just what you’re drawn to.
Vanity Fair did a round of interviews during Toronto Film Festival, and here’s a great one with Kirsten and Walter Salles about “On the Road”:
As we posted about last night, Kirsten was at the premiere for her new movie On The Road held at the Toronto Film Festival last night, and I’ve now added another 50+ HQ photos from the event to our Gallery. Kirsten looked so pretty in a pale pink dress by Dior, with her hair styled in a very 1940’s style with loose curls and a Swarovski crystal clip. Kiki accessoried with a Van Cleef & Arpels Lotus ring.
Check out the additional photos in our Gallery, and scroll down this post for an article about the event plus some videos.
Here’s a video with the Q&A after the premiere of “On the Road” at the Toronto International Film Festival:
